The ICare Foundation (ICF) is a development initiative functioning to create immediate and lasting improvements to the lives of people affected by lack of quality healthcare and educational issues, poverty, and disaster. We believe that the world can and must be promptly transformed into one where everyone can live a full life, free from scarcity.

Founded by Isaac Kigozi – a Ugandan film producer based in Los Angeles, this initiative is a human-centered, non-sectarian, non-partisan organization working for social development of vulnerable and marginalized people. ICF could also be labeled as a mobilization and implementing organization which designs and implements various developmental projects with the financial and technical support of international donor agencies, individuals, and the government.

ICF was established by a group of young and energetic humanitarians in Uganda and in the diaspora from different professions, all of whom are highly motivated and committed to contributing their time, skills and energies for the development and empowerment of socially marginalized and vulnerable communities in Uganda through addressing issues in healthcare, education and livelihoods.
